Watch Friend Roulette sit on a big ugly yellow couch and play “Sailing Song” as a pink flamingo watches over their shoulders. It’s a song off their self titled EP, released back in April. I only just discovered this Brooklyn band while scrolling through my new favorite blog Antlered Pigeons but I’m already loving this chamber pop rockness boasting at times three drummers, male/female combo vocals, a violin, a bass clarinet, guitar, bass guitar and some synth action.
The group of friends were so happy that I was the 300th Facebook friend so they sent me their unreleased LP and free entry to one of their upcoming shows. It wouldn’t be fair for me to keep all this goodness to myself so they are letting you download two new songs “On her own tonight” & “Hi, Hello”! Grab the set from my Soundcloud here. It’s no surprise that members of such a large talented group are in several other bands including Illuminator, ARMS, Frances and Hospitality. Keep up with them online because you don’t want to miss out when these new tracks hit the streets, especially “Lie”. I wish I was going to be in Brooklyn for NYE because they are playing at Rubulad. I guess Ill just have to see them at the Paperbox Jan. 6th or at Pianos on the 20th or at Union Hall on the 26th or all three!
